Thanks for posting this abstract, I'm going to get the article to read in full. This is exactly the type of surgery I am considering.

Edit: Oops, this wasn't a full research article. But I did find several interesting topics included in the Proceedings while I scanned for this one.

46 years old. 12-15 years of intermittent pain, 2 years with constant pain.

DDD, L4-5 and L5-S1, pain confirmed by discogram.
PT, ESI's, Facet injection and block, Acupuncture - all no help.

2-level (Prodisc-L) ADR surgery with Dr. Bertagnoli, May 26, 2009.

Currently taking Opana-ER (tapering off) and oxycodone
